Tutankhamen is a young Egyptian king who is famous today because his tomb is filled with magnificent treasures
Tutankhamun was probably born at Akhetaten which was the capital city of Egypt. He was born in about the year 1346 BC
He became pharaoh at the tender age of nine in 1337 BC and reigned during the 18th Dynasty when the Egyptian Empire was at its height. He reigned from about 1337 to 1328 BC.
His tomb was discovered by a team of British archaeologists in 1922, nearly 3000 years after his death.
During an x-ray of the mummy in 1968, scientists found bone fragments in Tut's skull, prompting a sensational theory that the boy king had been bludgeoned to death
Tutankhamun was buried in a hastily prepared tomb at a place in Egypt called the Valley of the Kings, the traditional burial place of pharaohs.
